Sep-08-07  jdoliner: anyone got the line on 26. Bxb4 I'm sure there's something I'm missing but it looks pretty cool right now

  al wazir: 26. Bxb4 Qxb4 27. Qxb4 Nxb4 28. exf6 Rxd1+ 29. Rxd1 gxf6=
Sep-08-07  MostlyAverageJoe: In case anyone missed this tidbit from the game notes: Nicholas Nip is just 9 years old. And rated over 2000.
Sep-08-07  Dilbertarian: If 26. Bxb4 then simply Nxb4 and White is lost.
Sep-08-07  laskereshevsky: The PUN have something to do with this?!

  YouRang: Expanding on Schiller's comment about <24. g5! hxg5 25. h6>

It might go:
26. Rxh6 Bg7
27. Bxg5!

Now, if 27...Bxh6:
28. Bxh6, with threat of Rg1+, Qd3/Qc1, and Ne5

28...Kh7 29. Rh1 Kg8 30. Ne5 Qc1 and mate shortly

28...b3 29. Rg1+ Kh7 30. Ng5+ Kg7 31. Nxe6+ and mate soon.

28...Kh8 29. Rh1 (notice this prevents ...b3) Nf6 30. Qc1 with Bg7+, Qh6, Rg1 and mate soon.

Sep-08-07  Shams: wow, Nicholas is in chessgames.

I had the honor of teaching this kid in San Francisco for about six months. He had other trainers as well, of course. His progress was astonishing. No surprise he is on here already.

  Eric Schiller: I'm still stunned that the kid found 26.Qb3! Almost everyone would have played the queen to e4, allowing the big sacrifice line. His sense of danger may have held him back from an early g5, but it will serve him well against strong opponents.
